Questions about batteries

I have the K50 and the issued battery is a 7.4v with 1050mAh (7.8Wh) rating and the replacement batteries that I bought are rated at 7.4v with 1600mAh (11.8Wh) am I going to do damage to the camera if the specifications are not the same.

No risk of damage from those specs. It's the voltage that is most important; too low or too high can damage a device or just not work.

The mAh determines how many shots you'll get from the battery. It's okay to go with a larger size.

But oftentimes (though not always) third party batteries either overstate the spec or simply underperform.
